The Influence of Microbial Growth

Once these microorganisms are present in a fueling system, they can degrade the quality of the fuel which can lead to plugged filters or even pump and injector problems for customers. Equipment corrosion is also an expensive problem for gas station operators since it often results in unplanned downtime and increased maintenance costs.  

For this reason, it’s important that gas station operators monitor their sites for signs of corrosion and, once identified, take steps to mitigate corrosion before it negatively impacts their business.
